An Annual Grant of £3500 for Romanian Cultural Managers
In Memory of Gabriela Tudor
The Gabriela Tudor Foundation, Bucharest, in partnership with the Ratiu Foundation, London, are launching an annual grant in the field of cultural management, in order to commemorate Gabriela Tudor. This grant aims to offer the possibility of professional development on a European level.
Gabriela Tudor – who passed away, alas too soon, in January 2009 – has significantly contributed to the development of the Romanian cultural scene through her initiatives and projects, and her direct support given to artists and cultural organisations.
The goals of this grant are to keep alive the memory of Gabriela Tudor – one of the few visionary cultural managers in Romania – and at the same time to contribute to the development and motivating of emerging Romanian cultural managers.
The grant, with the value of £3500, will be presented yearly. It will consist in a stay of six weeks in the UK.
The grant’s recipient will also benefit from consultancy from United Experts, at no cost, to implement a cultural project in 2010.
The grant programme will take place in the United Kingdom, any time from January to July 2010.
Applications’ Deadline: 10 September 2009
The applications will be selected by a commission formed by Irina Cios (cultural manager and curator of the International Centre for Contemporary Art, Bucharest), Petra Bischof (cultural manager, Swiss Cultural Programme), Ramona Mitrica (director, Ratiu Foundation UK) and Cosmin Manolescu (executive director, Gabriela Tudor Foundation).
The winner of the first Gabriela Tudor Grant will be invited to take part in the official launch of the grant in cultural management, which will take place in London, at the Ratiu Foundation, on 8 October 2009.
For details and to obtain the application forms, please contact us on e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, contact person Cosmin Manolescu, or visit the internet sites www.gabrielatudor.ro and www.ratiufamilyfoundation.com
